untitled 12 Useful and Free Downloadable Web Design Books | Speckyboy Design Magazine There are a multitude of books (whether in digital format or print) that cover every possible aspect of web design, each one is unique and offers a personalized opportunity for the author to both educate, inspire, and guide the reader through there knowledge. In this post rather than offer all of my favorite web design books, I have listed 12 books that I have either downloaded and read (or at least scanned through), or I have bookmarked with the whole-hearted intention of eventually reading it (Ruby Best Practices), and the best thing of all? All of these books are completely FREE, in digital format anyway (PDF or HTML). I have not offered a critique of each book, as I feel that would not be fair on the author. If someone spends so much of their valuable time (in some cases months and months) and writes an entire book on web design, in my eyes they deserve only praise and appreciation. I hope you find these books useful. The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web (HTML)

As a consultant, I have been recommending this strategy for years to my clients and I was thrilled to hear its success reinforced by a leading executive. One portion of Dorsey’s schedule that I found less inspirational is “Sundays are for strategy, and a lot of job interviews.” Emily has consulted with design firms and in-house corporate creative departments for over twenty years. Emily currently serves on the board of advisors of InSource and on the AIGA In-House task force.
